WONDERFUL!

“Who does great things and unsearchable, marvellous things without number” (Job 5:9).

Indeed, you are ordinary people but God who dwells in you is very special. He is the one to perform miracles. Why does God perform miracles? The reason is that He is filled with compassion. Yes, it is His love, affection, mercy, kindness and compassion which bring miracles in your life.

Job, the devotee, rejoices and praises God saying, "He does great things past finding out, yes, wonders without number." Why does God perform wonders? The reason is that one of His Names is 'Wonderful.' "....His name will be called wonderful......" (Isaiah 9:6). Since His Name is 'wonderful', all He does are wonders. Dear children of God, He who is wonderful will do wonders for you.

God said, "Let there be light" and the Sun, moon and the stars appeared wonderfully.  He rebuked the wind and said to the sea, "Peace, be still". Both the wind and sea obeyed Him and there was peace. Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit saying, “Be quiet, come out of him" and immediately the unclean spirit came out of him. All the words of His mouth and the deeds of His hands are wonders.  

He is the one to raise the dry bones back to life. He brought Lazarus to life, who had died four days back and was stinking in the grave. God is the one to walk on the sea. He fed five thousand persons with just five loaves. Even today, He is doing wonders. God asks, “Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for me?” (Jeremiah 32:27).

Look up to God who is doing miracles. Praise and exalt Him saying, "You are wonderful." He will do a miracle for you. “He raises the poor out of the dust and lifts the needy out of the ash heap” (Psalms 113:7).

Learn to praise God for every miracle we find in the Scripture. Did He not do a miracle by turning water into wine in the wedding of Cana when there was a shortfall of wine? Has He not turned ordinary people like water into faithful saints who are wine? Dear children of God, since He is 'Wonderful', He will hear your prayers and do miracles in your life.   

To meditate: “For I have satiated the weary soul and I have replenished every sorrowful soul” (Jeremiah 31:25).
